from the top spot. and nation, you did it. yesterday "america again" hit number one on amazon! wooooooooo! [cheers and applause] literally -- literally read it and weep, bill! this is huge. "killing kennedy" has been on the amazon charts for ten weeks! nine weeks longer than it took him to write it. [ laughter ] not only did "america again" beat out "killing kennedy," it also beat out the kinky, psychosexual novel "fifty shades of grey" due, i'm sure, to my book's graphic depictions of depraved sadomasochistic sex. [ laughter ] once again, my apologies to doris kearns goodwin. [ laughter ] as for papa bear, i have so crushed my hero, i look forward to his next book "killing a fifth of bourbon in a puddle of my own tears" by bill o'reilly but my book is not the only thing that has captured the imagination of america. the country is gripped by the prospect that i will be appointed to replace jim demint in the us senate by south carolina governor nikki haley.

would expect to see in a banana republic, not the united states of america this. needs to be condemn in the strongest language possible and more importantly, the thugs committing these acts of violence need to be restrained and arrested. law & order has to prevail. if it doesn't, this violence will spread, there will be blood in the streets and at some point, some people may in fact die. that's the course we are currently -- the violence that we are seeing is, in part, a response to desperation by the labor movement. they know that the stars are aligned against them. they know their best days are in the past, not the future. they know they are losing membership, influence and power, even in states that are the birth place of the labor movement. as their power reside, their anger rises. as their anger rises, they are lashing out, using very dangerous rhetoric and violence. this is not going to work. point number 3, the mainstream media is once again showing an unbelievable double standard. tonight, we are dedicating an entire segment to this. number 4, president civility, president ob
of america shared in that growth. by making education affordable, by fostering innovation and job creation, and providing economic security to retirees through medicare and social security, our country went from a paralyzing great depression to an economic superpower. we were able to accomplish such a drastic transformation because we were willing to consider revenue as a way to invest in the future, as a way to promise security to our seniors -- economic security to our seniors. focusing spending on policies that work and balancing revenue is at the core of this debate. i've made tough choices in the 1990's that balance the budget, generated a surplus and supported robust job creation. in january of 1993, unemployment stood at 7.3%. in january 2001, that rate had been reduced to 3.9%. that period of record growth also saw an important decline in the poverty rate. in 1993, 15.1% of americans were in poverty. but thanks to job growth and an expanding economy, based upon a balanced approach to deficit reduction, including revenue and targeted reduction in expenditures, poverty fell to 11.3%

of a testament to america's shipbuilding prowess. they are a critical tool for the united states, for our economic security and national security when it documents arctic. you see the ice breakers mean jobs to washington state and that's why in this final package the importance of these ships, these ice breakers, the polar sea was in danger of being scrapped. there is no denying that we need to build a new icebreaker fleet for the future and for our navy arctic mission. but these specialized vessels will take up to ten years to build. so in the meantime, we want to make sure that u.s. companies can continue to do business and keep the arctic operational and running, and so it's very fitting that the icebreakers that work fine now are not dismantled. so this legislation prevents them from being scrapped and helps us have the resources that we need to serve interests in the arctic. this bill stipulates that we won't junk our current icebreakers, and it's more cost-effective to keep them, and it will make sure that they stay seaworthy so that the crews don't go out on faulty equipment. these

might be more supportive in the long run of america and the west? >> there is something to that. it is hard to pick and choose, but there is a case for differentiating, of saying, we are going to try to advance certain people in the opposition. we should not kid ourselves even though they use the word coalition. it is not a single unit by any stretch of the imagination, so why don't we look for military and intelligence support for those individuals and groups who can do effective fighting? we think we are more likely to move indirections' we think we can support. there might not be that large a set of people that can fit those criteria. >> how much support you think the u.s. is giving those groups at the moment? >> it is my understanding is fairly modest. it is mostly nonlethal aid. with few exceptions, i do not think the problem facing the opposition is lack of arms. they have captured a lot. there have been some defections, so while they could probably use anti armor and anti helicopter tight arms, they have more than enough. i think it is more the organization and their lead
particularly as we successfully sail through our species experiences with america's -- in the next years or so. the foundation of the maritime business is the services that attract boats and ships and keeps us going in business. but commuter ferries and excursions are really kind of the core business of the port's maritime sector. if you take a look at it. we average, we carry on average 3.2 million ferry passengers annually these are commuter passengers moving between home and work expense and is we transport over 3 million excursion passengers annual low people looking at sites alcatraz and golden gate bridge. and then we see international cruise ships that alleged violentors to and from the port and crews members aboard those ships speak to our ferry services, you're, our ferry services operate chiefly out of the downtown ferry terminal behind the ferry building. they also operate out of peer 39, and 41 in the north. the gate b number downtown ferry terminal is for the north bound lanes such as value lay hough and gate e is for ala immediate a eoakland and island services blue and g
the courageous men and women that made america what it is, i'm reminded we too went through challenging periods, when america was divided by a bitter civil war 150 years ago. president abraham lincoln had the vision to pull us together toward a shared goal of peace and prosperity. growing up in california i didn't know much about the arab world. then after graduating from the university of california at berkeley, i traveled to north africa as peace corps engineer. i worked as an english teacher in morocco two years and quickly grew to love this part of the world. since joining the service i spent almost my entire career in middle east and africa. one of the things that impressed me were people old enough to have lived and traveled in the united states when we had closer relations. those days are back. we had 1,700 libyans apply for fullbright grants to study in the united states this year, more than any other country in the world. we know that libya is still recovering from an intense period of conflict. there are many courageous libyans who bear the scars of that battle. we are happy we have b

(laughter) (cheers and applause) now obama won't budge off his calls for $1.6 trillion in new tax revenue over the coming decade, mostly from increasing tax rates and taxes on upper-bracket earners. folks, that's just punishing our nation's job creators. america's billionaires are the engine that drives our economy through smart investments! and occasionally through dumb ones.

square-mile city there,. we are one of the most densely populated cities in america, more than new york city. we rank no. 1 in per-capita use of public transportation. we are a vibrant community filled with boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. hurricane sandy was devastating. the hudson river spilled into hoboken from both the north and the south. more than half of the city was flooded. three of the four firehouses and more than 7000 homes were flooded. we estimate the total damage at well over $100 million. thankfully, our main street did not flood and is open for business. even the businesses that did not flood have been severely impacted by one of our principal means of transportation to new york. the train has been flooded and still has not been restored. this is due to the difficulty of getting to and from the city. some were forced to operate at an alternate location as they tried to navigate the insurance got lead. the national flood insurance program is not designed to meet the needs of the urban environment. there is a fundamental unfairness that i respectfully ask congress to tr

'll have more from the scene, coming up later today, on "good morning america." >>> we have breaking news now. an overnight manhunt, at cal state fullerton, is over, lasting over 12 hours during the night, after the university went on lockdown. s.w.a.t. teams spent the night looking for two robbery suspects who led police on a wild chase, after holding up a jewelry store and shooting an employee. at least one of the men was spotted in a university building last night. police slowly went door-to-door until giving the all-clear around midnight. during the ordeal, students tweeting pictures from the scene. you could see them in dark classrooms. some using tables and chairs to barricade themselves. the cal state website says things will be back to normal, beginning this morning. >>> well, john mcafee's legal saga has taken another turn this morning. the software pioneer is back in the u.s., after the guatemalan government deported him. mcafee arrived in miami last night and then spoke to reporters from his hotel in south beach. he told abc news that he lost everything in belize, $20 million i

opportunity to write the next chapter in america and america's exceptional story, but we must always remember that nothing is given. america's greatness must continue to be earned. our nation has built generation by generation through hard work and resiliencey of the american people and our generation must do our part to live up to this awesome responsibility. we must be a country that stands for freedom and liberty, economic growth and opportunity for every american and i remain optimistic that we can continue to make this country even better if we stay committed to these principles. mr. speaker, i want to thank the people of the 10th district for the opportunity and honor to represent them in the united states congress. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. under the speaker's announced policy of january 5, 2011, the chair recognizes the gentleman from georgia, mr. johnson, for 30 minutes. mr. johnson: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i was thinking to myself earlier this day, what happens when you put in a cage fight a giant in with a midget where
's go where we have good labor relations in the united states of america -- the wages are reasonable. >> greta: are the big companies, though, are they the one who is are union busting? if they are only going to go to those states and put some governors up against the wall, in order to compete -- >> sure. they are going to get the best deal. here's where i agree with the union guys. nafta, gatt, they are magna carta for transcontinental corporations to shut down the united states, where they have high wages and the high regulations and move it over to china, cut your wage rate by 80%, produce there, bring the products back into the united states and then the huge new profits you make, share those with your shareholders and the executives. and that's where i disagree this globalization, free trade. they have really been unfair. one place i agree with hoffa. he was with me in the 90s. they are bringing mexican trucks into the united states, driving them on american highways, mexican drivers into rounder-cut american teamsters. i think that's wrong. i think the teamsters -- >> greta: ye
sort of his takeoff platform. he's apologizing but i'll be a robust patriot. i'll defend america against anything foe or friend because i'm a real american. and this guy because he recognizes we live in a world of other countries that are decent countries. they're not all the enemy out there. this right wing attitude it's just us or just us and israel against all these evil third world people and they're just crazy about that. it's so dangerous. >> to finish this point for one second. the thing is -- and this is what ornstein was saying too. that his campaign was based on a lot of major big sweeping lies. now, you can look at obama and point out that he made a mistake, misrepresented obama's policy in this way and that way. but that the overall case was not based on a series of falsehoods against mitt romney. while that was true on the republican side. that's the asymmetry. they point out the media has a hard time saying that. it's easy to say everyone lies on both sides. but not all lies are created equal or have equal impact. >> yeah. there's this false equivalence we're trying
this problem. >> don't even think about raising medicare age. we are not throwing america's seniors over the cliff to give a tax cut for the wealthiest people in america. >> the president is not going to stop spending. he is proposed -- >> senator -- >> more spending. so it's hard to work with someone who i think is intentionally trying to take us over this cliff. >> he is prepared to negotiate but it is not a tenable position to say that the tax cuts for the wealthy should be made permanent. it is not gonna happen. >> as for future talks between the president and house speaker bain per, so far, none are planned and all of this comes as our new nbc news/wall street journal poll shows 70% of democrats and 59% of republicans want their party's leaders to come to an agreement, even if it means not sticking to long-held position on taxes and entitlements. joining me now, democratic congresswoman gwen moore of wisconsin, a member of the house budget committee. thanks for joining me. >> thanks for having me, tam rochblt. >> we got word from aides, speaker boehner, going to ohio tomorrow, wheth
